Least Favorites:

This might be the first time ever that the original cover is my least favorite.  He just looks like an upside down evil wizard thing! Also I don’t like the red and gold and black color scheme.  In case you can’t see the weird upside down wizard thing.  Here he is.  All I did was turn him around and add feet and eyes (the white part is his beard)

Favorites:

Not only is the original cover my least favorite, but none of my favorites are in English, which is unusual for me.  From Left to Right, my favorites editions are: Bulgarian, Russian, Persian.

Winners:

Urg, this is impossible.  I love the Russian (left) edition, but it is a little too Halloweeny for the story.  On the Persian (right) edition, I love the two Londons and the imagery of them in-between everything, but I don’t love the way Kell and Delilah are drawn. Its a tie.  I can’t decide!

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!
